Well located, comfortable and secure accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four found this apartment to be convenient, well located and value for money. Walking distance to Russell Square tube station, shops and restaurants/pubs. Basic kitchen was adequate but limited (eg not much cutlery). The only catch for our stay was that the lift was not working over the four days which meant lugging our bags up and down the 4 floors.

Comfortable, Clean, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the flat for 2 weeks in July 2017 - our second visit and returning in December. Great location with access to three tube stations and bus. Brunswick shopping center has Waitrose super market, pharmacy, restaurants, etc. The flat in not fancy but very comfortable. Nice neighborhood - very secure. Manager is very responsive and got us a couple of fans when we had a couple of days of warm weather (all you needed).our favorite nearby restaurants were the Duke Pub and Ciao Bella. Fast Wi-fi.

Solid, last minute stay with family in Bloomsbury/Holborn

  • 4 of 5

We traveled with a husband, wife, and twin 7-year-old daughters. Our trip to London was arranged at the last minute, so inventory on HomeAway/VRBO was shrinking. This flat was available for part of the trip, so we took the plunge. Payment was a bit unorthodox for HomeAway but went off without a hitch.

Location is good -- three blocks away from Russell Square on the Piccadilly Line and a block away from Coram's Fields, which has several playgrounds, a kids' zipline, and a small urban farm with goats and a pack of rabbits (bring some lettuce if you want to feed them). The Brunswick shopping mall is right near the station, with a large Waitrose supermarket, a few late night market options, two drug stores, an arthouse-oriented movie theater, and a few of the ubiquitous restaurant and cafe chains that permeate London. Salaam Namaste is a very fine Indian restaurant right around the corner, and the Lamb's Conduit Road pedestrian district with a few quirky shops, cafes, and pubs. There is some road noise that was audible from the living room, but not (to our urban ears) in the bedrooms.

This flat is on the top floor. A small lift can carry luggage but not people, so not the best if you're averse to climbing stairs, but great for natural light. It had a roomy king size bedroom and a second bedroom with bunk beds, each (American) twin size beds.

A flash heater provided plenty of hot water, though the shower took some tweaking to get the desired temperature. The kitchen had an electric conduction stove, small oven, microwave, and a fridge/freezer, along with a range of diningware, glassware, corkscrew, and utensils. Clothes washer was a little quirky but we got it to work. WiFi was a Star dish service and download rates were very good at all hours. Apartment was delivered in spotless condition.

Concerns: flight landed at 7 am. We could drop off our bags at 10 am (and were greeted by one of the managers), but couldn't move in until more like 1 pm. (We knew this, and the flat had just been vacated the morning arrived and they were cleaning the place when we arrived; another group is arriving the day we are leaving.) Would get five stars with a formally written down guide to the apartment, with local resources, tips for using the washing machine (we downloaded a manual) and the shower. But for convenience to shops, and a hop, skip, and a jump away from the British Museum and King's Cross/St Pancras, a good solid last minute option.

Location, Comfort, Economy

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the flat for the month of November 2016 with wife, daughter and grandson visited for two weeks during our stay. The flat was secure, comfortable, and in a very convenient location for shopping and transportation-easy walk to 3 underground stations, Waitrose supermarket, and excellent restaurants. Photos in listing accurate. As stated in the listing, not a lot of amenities but not a problem.Mike responded quickly and payment was easy via credit card. The lift was vintage, small, but worked perfectly during our stay. If you need a second bedroom, in a very popular area, and are on a budget,

the flat is an excellent choice. We plan to return in 2017.

location perfetta, casa che necessita di pulizia

  • 3 of 5

Eravamo 4 adulti ed abbiamo scelto di soggiornare presso la casa di Mike. La casa si trova in un bel quartiere a 10 minuti al massimo dalla fermata della metro di Russel Square (piccadilly line). Nella zona ci sono diversi Pub ed un piccolo centro commerciale con ristorantini, negozi e Waitrose. Siamo arrivati con quasi un'ora di ritardo rispetto all'orario stabilito a causa del traffico nella metropolitana ma abbiamo preventivamente avvisato Caroline, la collega di Mike che doveva farci il check-in. Check-in che è stato molto veloce forse a causa del nostro ritardo (sembrava che Caroline dovesse scappare...).

La casa è esattamente come nelle foto. Piccola ma funzionale. I letti sono comodi e le camere sono silenziose. L'unico problema è che non vede l'aspirapolvere da molto tempo!! La polvere regna ovunque (dai cassetti, all'armadio per non parlare sotto il letto dove, purtroppo, mi è caduto il cellulare....). In bagno, nella spazzatura, c'era ancora la roba degli inquilini precedenti (neanche svuotato il cestino!). La casa dovrebbe essere consegnata pulita e non così.

Purtroppo, ma questo non dipende da Mike, il secondo giorno si è rotto l'ascensore ed essendo sabato, fino a quando siamo partiti il lunedì mattina l'ascensore non ha più funzionato.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The lift engineers are usually very quick to reset the lift if it stops working from being overloaded. I agree that the apartment should be in a very clean order when guests arrive. I will raise this feedback with the cleaners and ensure they are doing their work well.

Great flat

  • 4 of 5

First off, let me say that the owner, Mike, was great. We had to find a flat in London ASAP and his was available. The communication with him and the ease of payment (via Paypal) was top rate. Let me tell you the pros and cons of the flat:

Pros:

Location - it was close to a tube stop (Russell Square) and a supermarket (Waitrose). It was about a 10 minute walk to either place. There's also a playground about a 5 minute walk. And, if you're coming on the Eurostar, the St. Pancras station is a 15 minute walk away.

Amenities - the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped with all the appliances.
